NAG CL Interface
g01rtc returns the value of the derivative of the Landau density function.
The function may be called by the names: g01rtc, nag_stat_pdf_landau_deriv or nag_prob_der_landau.
evaluates an approximation to the derivative
of the Landau density function given by
is described in g01mtc
, using piecewise approximation by rational functions. Further details can be found in Kölbig and Schorr (1984)
To obtain the value of
can be used.

On entry: the argument of the function.
Error Indicators and Warnings
At least significant digits are usually correct, but occasionally only . Such accuracy is normally considered to be adequate for applications in experimental physics.
Because of the asymptotic behaviour of ,
which is of the order of ,
underflow may occur on some machines when is moderately large and negative.
Parallelism and Performance
g01rtc is not threaded in any implementation.
This example evaluates at , and prints the results.
